For this we need to become selfshaping human beings who establish a regime of the soul that is better at managing the inner conflictual multiplicities. Perhaps indeed we need to move closer to the promised condition of the over-human and again proceed upwards in our metaxy, our inbetween animality and over-humanity, reawaken the animal in ourselves and learn to respect the animal kingdom. The digital world, as it exists at present, without a sufficiently significant Dionysian dimension, powerfully reinforces established political orders.

It has nothing to do with an inborn bad sinfulness. It can be corrected through training efforts. ” Christianity postulates that humans have an immortal soul that is entombed in a corrupt and corrupting body. The purpose of life is to save the soul, to avoid eternal damnation, and to achieve salvation, so as to dwell with the divine after death.
